Personal Description:

My name is Michelle and I am a jobbing musician and music teacher in London (specialising in teaching voice, piano & music theory.) I studied music at Brunel University where I specialised in performance, vocals, improvisation, popular music studies and electronic music production. Having had eight years of classical and popular singing lessons and specialising in vocals at university, I have an extensive knowledge of how the voice works. I now work as a choir leader and music tutor.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 3+ years experience teaching piano, singing and music theory. Ages have ranged from 7-60 and I have taught on a one-to-one basis, led small workshops and led large groups of up to 60 people.

Tutoring Approach:

I provide vocal and performance coaching, songwriting tuition, music theory tuition, and production tuition. I don't have a set way of teaching. I like to take a holistic approach and mould my lessons around the clients needs.

In terms of vocal performance I will make sure singers have a firm grasp of the technical elements of the voice and the importance of breathing and posture in order to have a firm foundation on which to build their voice. I will also teach my students how to deliver the words of a song in order to convey a convincing performance and work in detail on each song to produce this. This crosses over into performance coaching as I believe visuals are highly important in performance and the way a singer portrays themselves on the outside highly influences what comes out from inside. I focus on posture, movement and eye-line and work with the performer to find a style they feel comfortable with. I work hard to ensure the performer both looks and feel comfortable and confident on stage.

Music theory involves time signatures, scales and keys, sight-reading, notation, harmonies and intervals. I am happy to provide a full music theory lesson or integrate this with a vocal/music production lesson. We can also use the piano and get practical to make the session more fun!

I am able to coach students how to produce electronic music. I can teach you how to build up a song, starting with creating a drum beat, and adding layers of instruments and I can teach you how to manipulate these instruments, how to create your own synth sounds.
